About this exposition

Name: Noyuri Hazama Main Subject: Baroque Violin Research Supervisor: Bart van Oort Title of Research: Vibrato in the Time of Mendelssohn Research Question: How would vibrato have been played in Mendelssohn’s violin music, specifically his concerto? Summary of Results: The usage of vibrato in Mendelssohn's time was much different than what we use today in historical performance practice. Players were using different techniques for it, creating a different effect, and there was a system and common knowledge of when and how vibrato should be used. In this period, there was a rejection of ornaments in general, vibrato being one of them, and it was emphasized that it should not be over-used. I have used Mendelssohn's violin concerto as a piece to apply these rules, and came to conclusions based on historical evidence and my own experimentation. Biography:  Violinist Noyuri Hazama has won recognition throughout Europe and Japan for both modern and historical performance. She received top prizes in the Premio Bonporti International Baroque Violin Composition and the Japan-German Exchange Festival. Noyuri has performed with Bach Collegium Japan, the Orchestra of the 18th Century, The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the Netherlands Bach Society, and Werner Hink with other principal members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. She is also a founding member of the Goldfinch Ensemble, which has won international recognition in festivals and competitions. She will perform the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto for the conservatoire project with the Orchestra of the 18th Century in May 2017.
